“I used to be one of those guys roaming around in Europe only caring about good waves, nice people, sweet inspirational talks and a cold beer.” tells us photographer Phil Wildschuetz. “I loved that time, that’s for sure. Somehow I made my way back to Germany to follow a path I somehow felt comfortable with but never really fitted in. Studying Business was, at least for that moment, the easiest way to fit into this strange system we call society. During my studies I continued traveling in my semester breaks to distract myself from not fitting in. The inspiration of that series was to travel back in time to those days. Those carefree days where you fit in just for being you.” he continues about his series starring Lea June Giese. “So we met to practice skating, listening to some good music, laughing and talking about the universe, just to have one carefree day.” The images express exactly what Phil told us in words. No glossy pictures, but sharing those good and carefree moments with us. And reminding us of our own memories we want to travel back to.
